New favorite light source

Same deal as the 3ft version, only clumsier set up. First time assembly can be a chore, but after that, the rods a bit easier to deal with. Not easy to set up outdoors if you want to keep it clean, best to set up before a location shoot, however, when assembled it does not fit in my car. Predictable light fall off and feathers well. Nice catchlights. The worst thing is there are no guides for the rods, just a loop and a pocket for the rods to reside, and during assembly they can pop out of...

The worst thing is there are no guides for the rods, just a loop and a pocket for the rods to reside, and during assembly they can pop out of the pocket (x8 rods) which can become quite annoying when in a time crunch. My solution was to gaffer tape the rods to their respected places and to leave them there even in storage. Total set up and break down time saver.

Great Octabox for the price

By

I use this octabox for everyday on location portraits and in the studio. Super easy to set up and break down. For the price you really can't beat it!

I love it!

By

This octabox is big, light and very easy to set-up and disassemble. Its zipper makes things much-much easier to set-up. I plan to buy another one, and a smaller size, same brand, softbox. Of all softboxes I have had to this date this is durable, well built, has no hot-spots, emits soft and well distributed light, and again is very easy to put together without bending/damaging the rods. I even carry it with me to some out of studio photographic sessions. For the price is an excellent choice. Keep in mind that you may need a good light-stand, and probably a couple of sand bags to keep it steady due to its size.

Wonderful Soft Light

By

Love using this in the studio for great soft light. I have also used it on location with the Flashpoint lights and battery pack....bulky but once setup was fantastic.

A nice solid cost effective piece

By

A really nice, solid item. The material is very tough and seems like it will hold up very well over the long haul.

Does not include ANY speed ring

By

I know, it doesn't say it includes a speed ring, but I was talking to an Adorama rep about buying it. I said "I need to buy a speed ring to attach this to a Flashpoint 320M, right?" and he said "no, it is included." ...So I just wanted to make it 100% clear to anybody else who is getting mixed messages: there is no speed ring included, not even a Flashpoint-ready one. Even buying the SR separate, still a great value.

A Very Big Bang for the Buck!

By

I was amazed when I was looking for a oct. box and found this one at a course I took with Mark Wallace. He said that Adomora had sent it to him for review and he kept it. I bought it because of his review of it and am glad I did. It gives great light and has become my main light in my studio. With the zipper it is one of the easiest soft boxes to put together. It may not be of the strongest material but the price for it is a way less than the other softboxes I have in the studio and I never take them down so I don't have a complaint! I would not only recommend it to a friend, I would recommend it to my mother.

Superb softbox

By

This is an EXCELLENT SUPERB softbox. For the price it can't be beat. Good even source of light from it using my Elinchrom Quadra and even using a Nikon SB900 still produced a great light source.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Will this softbox work with any JTL Lights? Would I need to buy an adapter ring to make it work?
SCOTT P  This is a great soft box, especially for the price. But to answer your question, I had to get a speed ring for my flashpoint light and a speed ring for my alien bee. They were two different speed rings. Therefore, I would say that you would need a speed ring for the JTL light.
Jenifer J  Can I use this on a continuous light? If so, what adapter ring do I need please. Thank You!
CASEY J  You would need to check your manufacturer. Chances are if you are able to attach a speed ring to it then it will work.
Michelle O  I usually do natural light portraits but am going to start shooting bands inside on a white backdrop. I think I will have two 300w mono lights to light the backdrop and a main 600w light for the band. I seen others use large octaboxes as a modifier on their main light but this was only for a couple people. I am wondering if I should get this or not. Would a large umbrella work just as well?
JOHN C  This would work perfectly for what you have in mind. I have done some very similar work with it. You will have to be aware of some shadows that you can control with either reflectors or secondary directional lighting, but this thing throws huge soft light that will cover almost any size group.
